Gilbert Gottfried Reads Erotica

Erotica // Tuesday, September 04, 2012
We already know that the most popular erotica novel ever produced isn't the most eloquently written literature ever written. So, take 50 Shades of Gray and put it in the hands of the most obnoxious voiced man in history and BOOM. Everything suddenly goes spinning out of control from kinda sexy to totally grotesque.

A Splendid Collaboration

Erotica // Monday, September 03, 2012
On this lovely Labor Day afternoon we're really digging these experimental fashion pieces from Australian illustrator Justin Maller and NYC-based photographer Chris Knight. They're a prime example of the beauty that can arise when fashion, illustration, and erotica converge.

Beijing Exposed

Erotica // Monday, September 03, 2012
In his native Beijing, Ren Hang is viewed as a counter cultural photographer, documenting his city's uneasy transition into a more liberal society in the wake of the 2008 Olympics.

Enigmatic Nudes by Arnold Frolics

Erotica // Friday, August 31, 2012
There isn't much information out there on photographer Arnold Frolics, and his evocative nudes impart a similar air of mystery. Solitary figures bare all on deserted playground structures and other backdrops in shots that are eerily spotlit à la David Lynch, while angles are often skewed to make for some gravity-defying compositions. Equal parts surreal and sensual.
